I read two threads, one from onefastmiata, but I think she was tongue-in-cheek saying she was naming her TWO cars she has ordered catsup (or ketchup) and mustard.

Also saw another thread saying his wife always got to name the new cars or something like that.

Anyone really naming their Elise?

I'd call mine "Speedy" or something stupid, I suppose.

Just my opinion - I could be wrong.

My license place says elease but it's real name is bumble bee in honor of my cousin. If a five year old takes one look at your car and decides it's name, can you really disappoint him and not take it?
